All one need do is take a look around to become aware that our world is full of color. We are affected by color all day long beginning with the clothing we choose to wear for the day, to the stop lights and traffic signs we encounter on our way to work, to the decor of our office building and even the logos of our favorite lunchtime items. Mother Nature provides us with plenty of color in a blue sky, a red rose or a green lawn–on the chillier side—a gray sky, brown leaves or a white mountain top. Did you notice how each one of those references conjured up a different vision and feeling when you read them? Well, the same thing can happen with the colors you choose for your home.
The mood of a room will be determined by the hue, the tone and the saturation of your favorite color or color combination, and that mood will be interpreted differently by each and every person who enters the room. Therefore, you can see that selecting a color and/or color combination can often be a difficult and trying process. But no need to worry—your home should be a reflection of you and your family so begin by choosing colors you like and mix and match them to your heart’s content. Here are some photos of homeowners who did just that, with a very successful outcome, wouldn’t you agree?
